Although it may still be cool in your state, evening outings in the yard with a cool non-alcoholic sangria in the spring is the best. You can enjoy the scenery and the warming breeze while sipping and chatting away with friends. This is also a good chance to show off your gardening skills as well as drink making skills.
Italian cream soda
Although it may seem a new concept to some, cream soda come in various different ways in almost half the world, and it is a favorite among all those who drink it at least once. To make the Italian cream soda, the best thing is to make your own syrup flavor. This drink can be customized to your own personal tastes and does not stick to one recipe. The basic recipe for the drink is to add syrup (whichever you prefer) and then fill the glass three quarts with crushed ice, and then slowly adding sparkling water till the glass is full followed by heavy cream on the very top. You are supposed to mix the drink when you are about to drink it to get the tastes all tangled up.
The trick in this drink is to make your own syrup like the best clubs usually do. To make the homemade syrup grab your favorite fruits (1 cup) and then one quart water. Firstly you need to boil the water and the fruits together until the fruit has all gone mushy and lost its texture and sometimes color. Then grab a cloth and strain this mixture into a glass or bowl. Take this juice and then boil with one third cup of sugar until all the sugar has melted. Take it off from the stove and cool and use as the flavor syrup.
Blackberry and lemon fizzer
For this cooling drink you will need fresh blackberries, sugar, water, lemonade (fresh), lemon juice (fresh), seltzer or club soda, lemon slices and some mint leaves. Grab the blackberries and smash them to bits and then simmer with water, lemonade and sugar for 10 minutes. Then take off the stove and cool and strain with a piece of cloth (cloth is good for fine straining). Then add lemon juice and refrigerate until it’s cooled completely. When you are serving take a glass and fill with seltzer and some of this mixture. Add the lemon, mint and blackberries for garnishing (like what they do at some of the best clubs).
Mocktails are easy to make and fun to have as you can make your own favorite recipes without much trouble. You can make use of your trip to farmer’s market to grab those fresh fruits and make sure they do not go to spoil.
